The Master Symbol and the Ascended Masters

Article by Ashwini Chubé


Those who are fortunate enough to be Reiki channels can divide life into 2 parts. One before the Reiki master attunement and another after the attunement. My life has changed drastically after master attunement. My teacher’s advice was to connect as much as possible to the Usui master symbol, communicate to it, meditate upon it and that is what would be the true essence of the attunement.

Reiki is not just about physical and emotional healing, but also about your spiritual connection to the higher and purer energies, to the other dimensions and other realms. The journey as a Reiki Master is not easy . It is all about shedding away all the things and relationships that are not necessary and embracing the truth and your reason for existence on this earth plane. The Master symbol chooses you, and once it does there is no looking back. It offers healing at a soul level uprooting the root cause of all issues. Most people believe that being a master and a master teacher is an end of the reiki “studies”.Contrary to the common misconception, it is in fact the beginning of a wonderful Reiki journey.

Meaning of Dai Ko Myo or the Reiki Usui Master Symbol

The master symbol is comprised of 3 parts in the form of 3 Kanji characters which is also the chant or mantra connected with the symbol. The symbol is used by a master while attuning the student at all levels right from the first level. However it is taught only at the third level. The true essence of the symbol is much more than just mastership. It is about empowerment, finding your inner master and walking on the path of light while illuminating yourself.

Ascended Masters

I had my divine meeting with ascended masters when I first purchased the “Ascended Masters” Oracle cards deck by Doreen Virtue. In fact, it was the first oracle cards deck ever purchased by me much before I started reading oracle cards on a regular basis. And as I always say, that deck chose me.

Who are Ascended Masters

Ascended Masters are the divine enlightened beings in the form of great spiritual teachers, healers, loving leaders who incarnated on the earth plane as human beings to help the human race evolve and teach them about unique purposes like compassion, unconditional love, patience, faith, empowerment, and healing. They are known by various names like highly evolved souls, illuminated ones or the elect.

The 7 Rays and the Masters:

There are 7 spiritual rays signifying 7 qualities on the spiritual path. Each ray has a distinct quality and depending on what your life purpose or calling is, every individual will be drawn to a particular ray. Every ray has along with archangels, an ascended master who is called as Chohan of that particular ray. They teach us what it means to follow the qualities of a particular ray. In addition to the seven rays, there is an eighth ray which integrates all the qualities of the 7 rays. One has to master the 7 rays in order to reach the eighth ray.

Below is a quick reference to the Ascended Masters and their respective rays:

Ray* Master   Colour   Qualities
1 El Morya Blue Willpower and Faith
2 Lanto Yellow Wisdom
3 Paul the Venetian Pink Unconditional Love
4 Serapis Bay White Purity
5 Hilarion Green Truth and Healing
6 Lady Nada Gold, Purple Peace
7 St Germain and
Kuan Yin
Violet Freedom and Transmutation
8 Gautama Buddha, Sanat Kumara and White Tara Golden Pink Integration

*The above is a quick list to be referred. Each of the above rays needs a lot of in depth study and practice to master. You may refer experts for detailed advice.

The above list of Ascended Masters is not exhaustive. There are many more ascended masters each who had an amazing contribution to the spiritual development of the mankind. Kumeka, Mahachohan Rakóczi, King Soloman, Ostiris, Melchizedek, Kuthumi all were Ascended Masters and came here to help us all ascend.

A quick meditation to connect to the Ascended Masters or channelise messages from them:

  • Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed.
  • Perhaps put a DND sign so that you won’t be interrupted.
  • Light a candle or play soft instrumental music or “OM” chant if you wish to.
  • Keep a pen and paper handy for any messages.
  • Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
  • Now activate the Master symbol and chant it 3 times.
  • Activate the distance symbol and chant its name 3 times.
  • Using the distance symbol, connect to the Ascended Masters.
  • You may say things like “Reiki energy please connect me to the Ascended Masters”.
  • You may receive messages from the masters or get some guidance.
  • Write them down on the paper.
  • You may simply feel a deep sense of peace.
  • Repeat this exercise once a week, it will deepen your connection.
  • Also at times you may get messages while doing relaxing activities like exercising or dancing or gardening or anything that makes you happy.

The Master symbol and the ascended masters

Connecting to Ascended Masters through Oracle cards:

  • Additionally if you wish you can also use Ascended Masters’ oracle card deck and take a message for yourself. (There are many good decks available in the market. I use the one by Doreen Virtue. Alternatively you can make your own card deck )
  • Oracle cards are easy to use and always give you the right answers as they respond to the energy of the Universe.
  • Always make sure you clear the oracle card deck before using it by giving Reiki to it for 4-5 minutes using the power and the healing symbols.
  • Shuffle it well and ask questions, pulling a card each.
  • Make sure you follow the guidance and inculcate it in your daily life.

    Thank you for this article today. It is so true, what you say about your life is two parts, one before and one after Reiki. I am an intutive reader and healer and have many gifts in my suitcase. My whole opening and recreation started with my first reiki attunment. I need to hear this today. How far I have come and changed and also comeback to myself. I feel integrated. It only took about 20 years, lol. so, thank you again.

    • ashwini chube December 5, 2015, 6:28 pm

    Thank you for this beautiful article, Ashwini! I have a deck of cards called Angels, Gods, and Goddesses that I am particularly connected to. I’ve been a Tarot Reader for 25 years, but this particular deck I have a particularly special affinity with. Anyway, I’m familiar with Doreen Virtue and her products, I’ve just been hesitant to purchase any of the decks for personal reasons. Perhaps I’ll explore this option further. Thank you again for sharing your Light and Experience <3 Namasté!
